A filmmaker from Philadelphia is combining his unique experiences from the fire service with his passion for filmmaking. In an attempt to bring to light what happens “Behind the Bay Doors” in the Fire Service, “Indie” director Brian Sullivan has launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund a feature-length documentary. This 90-minute documentary will focus on the cultural aspects of the brotherhood. This film was inspired by a short film produced in May of 2015 that focused on the frontline efforts of firefighters to protect and serve the public. “Behind the Bay Doors” will be submitted into the film festival circuit in 2017, with an anticipated limited theatrical and Online/VOD release.
To make the film a reality, the production team desperately needs your help. The campaign to fund the film has less than 3 weeks remaining to meet its goal. It can be found online at http://igg.me/at/firefighting. Additionally, media inquiries can be directed to Harrison Kendall, one of the Producers leading the film. His email is [email protected] and can also be reached at 610-220-6683 (cell).
There is so much more to firefighting than meets the eye. Brave men and women die every year protecting our families– many of which have families of their own. “Behind the Bay Doors” explores some of the lesser-known aspects of firefighting, such as station life, family life, and what it is like to train for disaster situations. This film focuses heavily on the characters at a few select fire stations across the United States.
The director of “Behind the Bay Doors” is a filmmaker who has worked in Hollywood as well as Philadelphia. Brian has a deep-seated passion for the post-production side of the industry, combined with a drive to tell stories that otherwise would go unnoticed. Through this documentary, he hopes to put the fire service in a brighter light throughout the United States.
